Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

A former UW coach has indeed landed an assistant’s job in the new United Football League — it’s just not Tyrone Willingham.
Instead, when the league officially announced its assistants today, included on the list was Al Roberts, who attended UW for a couple of years in the ’60s, later coached at Garfield and then was an assistant at Washington for a couple of years in the mid-90s, including serving as the running backs coach in 1996 when Corey Dillon ran wild. Roberts is named as an assistant at Orlando.
Willingham’s name, however, is not on the list after there were reports that he had accepted a job with the San Francisco franchise then backed out when the two sides couldn’t agree to terms.
You can find the complete lists of assistants here.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— ESPN’s Ted Miller has a list of 10 names to remember come September, including Husky WR Jermaine Kearse and Stanford OG David DeCastro, a Bellevue High product who seriously considered UW before heading to the The Farm.
— Buster Sports has a good roundup of Pac-10 news from spring football.
— Buster Sports also lists its top five Pac-10 LBs as well as some who could crack the list later in the season, mentioning Mason Foster in the latter group.
— Thanks to TheWizofOdds.comfor the heads-up on this story out of Louisiana, where LSU football coaches have to take a one-week furlough along with the rest of campus to try to make up for some budget issues. If all this economic news weren’t so sad for everyone it might be tempting to joke that maybe that week off will give UW an edge when the two teams meet on Sept. 5. LSU also is looking at playing more lower-level in-state foes for economic reasons, as well. UW, however, remains on the schedule to play at LSU in 2012.
Joe Montana has been named as an assistant coach at Oaks Christian High in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where his son Nick, plays. Nick Montana is a QB who has offers from a number of schools, including UW. Oaks Christian will play on Sept. 18 at Skyline High, the night before UW hosts USC — so I imagine there could be a lot of pretty well-known coaches on the sideline that night.
All for now.
